What's up with the Big Sugar Deal and our Governor Crist? Sounds like a "bait and switch" perpetrated on Florida Taxpayers at the expense of the Everglades.
Is this Charlie just being sour grapes; getting even for being passed over for VP by what's-her-name? He sure works hard for his pals at the decimated GOP.
Front Page today New York Times:
MIAMI — United States Sugar Corporation has agreed to sell 181,000 acres of farmland to the State of Florida for $1.34 billion in a slimmed-down deal intended to rescue the Everglades while letting the company stay in business.
The price is $410 million less than Gov. Charlie Crist offered for the entire company in June. It is also a simpler transaction involving only real estate — U.S. Sugar would retain its mill, citrus processing facilities and other assets — leaving open the possibility of preserving the company’s 1,700 jobs.“This is a unique opportunity,” said Robert Coker, a senior vice president with U.S. Sugar.
